We are passionate about good food and our expert chefs are a unique combination of a raw plant based specialist and a professional chef with a background of working in Michelin Star kitchens. Anna and Mike between them can cover areas as diverse as how to use new and exciting superfoods, adaptogenic mushrooms and interesting ferments as well as helping you master the kind of basic skills that will help you eat well and deliciously. Food with us will always be exciting, tasty and a mix of familiar and unusual for you to get an insight into how to supercharge your food choices. Some foods are particularly useful for insulin resistance and they are part of our program.
To make sustainable change, you must become an expert in your own diabetes. We can feed the same meal to three people with type 2 and they will have 3 different blood sugar readings afterwards. We will help you navigate all the complex factors that affect YOUR blood glucose readings. Food is key in this, but it is not the only factor.
